Tommy Robinson was punched in the face by a 70-year-old inmate for behaving "like a celebrity", according to reports. The alleged attack happened days after the English Defence League Founder, real name Stephen Yaxley-Lennon, was jailed for nine months for contempt of court. The 36-year-old put a Huddersfield grooming gang trial at risk of collapsing by filming the defendants in breach of a court order. He pleaded with Donald Trump to offer him asylum in the US and claimed that he would be killed in a British prison. The far-right extremist's words fell on deaf ears and he was attacked in the showers of HMP Belmarsh just days after arriving, according to the Daily Star Sunday . A source reportedly said: "There was a bit of pushing then one prisoner, a 70-year-old, very hard pensioner, decked Robinson with a punch to the jaw. “He didn’t have any idea who he had hit, but he wasn’t going to back down. Those are the rules in Belmarsh, you fight or back down.
